Research Interest: Inspired by common real-world mysteries and taking a “gene regulation centric” approach, our lab investigates the physiologic contributions and mechanisms of Regulatory RNAs in cardiometabolic diseases. Our ongoing efforts are focused on

  1. Noncoding RNAs and their binding partners in metabolism and atherosclerosis,
  2. Epigenetic and transcriptional control mechanisms in metabolism, and
  3. RNA modifications in metabolic regulation.
